I guess the first question to ask is are your pets known to eat plants and/or dig them up? We have plants all over the house and Jesse is only interested in one -- and it's been moved outside because Mommy was tired of shampooing every day. So if you can give some more info, I can give you some ideas and so can others.

some houseplants are not only poisonous to pets, but can be harmful to humans as well. i.e. dumb cane. Here's a link from the Humane Society of a large listing of common house plants:
